1:1 Interactions and Group Programs

The underlying purpose of ALL our interactions is to build meaningful social/life skills and maximize independence.

We accomplish this through a wide variety of recreation, leisure, and fitness activities.

 

Our 1-to-1 interactions use Person-Directed Planning  to track outcomes and ensure personalized service based on an individuals strengths and interests.

Our group programs provide an environment where individuals can learn and practice important social skills under the guise of recreation and fitness with their peers!

 

Participants can share in the learning, encourage one another, and give input into the direction of the group.  

 

It's learning disguised as FUN!
